No Longer Here

Just where do you think you're going?
Why have you come shedding a tear?
Do you not remember what He said?
The One you seek is no longer here.

Early you come to anoint the dead,
I tell you to set aside all your fear;
Come now and see for yourselves,
The One you seek is no longer here.

Surely you felt the very earth move,
You see the stone no longer near;
It has been rolled away by angels,
The One you seek is no longer here.

Unique is your experience today,
For into His tomb you did peer;
And found a promise has been kept,
The One you seek is no longer here.

Say to your brothers and your sisters,
And all those you come to hold dear;
He is risen and lives forever more,
The One you seek is no longer here.
